Here's my review of the cloud providers:

1. AWS: Overall solid, but has a UI that's like navigating a maze with one hand tied behind your back. Why isn't IPv6 on EC2 just a default thing?

2. IBM Cloud: Absolute chaos. Had a lovely phone call with customer support for half an hour yesterday (and by lovely, I mean painful). They asked for my NID, proof of life, and possibly a blood sample. Finally, they approved my account and let me add my card. Today, I tried to grab a free HP VPS, but who knows if it's activated or lost in the ether?

3. Azure: Fancy, but pricey! Tried to sign up and got the "down for maintenance" screen instead. Great timing, right?

4. Linode: Didn't even get past the door. Account canceled for fraudulent activities, but verified my payment method. Sent an email to support, but apparently, their support is on vacation.

5. DigitalOcean: Slightly more expensive than Linode, and didn’t like my Virtual Debit Card (even though it's legit and under my name).

6. Vultr: Onboarding was a breeze! But they hit me with a minimum deposit of $5 to activate my account. Sneaky.

7. Google Cloud: Gave it a shot even though I’m not a Google fan, but it's pricier than AWS. The search continues!

Note: I was only playing around with VPS and Cloud Compute (EC2), and it was quite the adventure!

Now, I understand why no one likes IBM Cloud.

It's a mess !

I'll stick to AWS, Linode and DO.

Неадекватная стоимость исходящего трафика у некоторых облачных хостеров

Пользователи часто поднимают вопрос неадекватной стоимости исходящего трафика (egress) у отдельных облачных провайдеров. Если обычные хостеры не тарифицируют этот трафик, то некоторые другие сервисы устанавливают специальные тарифы . Как показывает практика, это может стать неприятным сюрпризом для клиентов.

I'll be closing my #Linode account this month, just shy of 10 years after I opened it.

While I can still recommend them for someone who "justs wants a server" without all the complexity of Amazon, they no longer feel like the best fit for me.

My next adventure in #selfhosting will be physically hosting a server at my house. 🧵

Moving servers again (not the Mastodon one!). I went from Linode to a greener pasture that has since then proved itself not to be so green after all. So, I'm moving back "home" to #Linode again with two servers. Moving a lot of data over only 8MB/s will take some time, but it will give me a chance to set up the software needed anyway. Here's to a productive weekend y'all!

I just got into a situation where I restarted the Linode that hosts and, post-reboot, networking was broken. Nothing in, nothing out. Which, you know. is not that great. Can't ssh in, can open a shell through the Linode control panel, can make outgoing connections by IP address but DNS lookups fail.

It turns out that I had somehow turned off the config toggle "auto-configure networking", and as a result had a system that was
aware eth0 exists, thank you, but had no plans to do anything with it. Turn it back on, reboot, and I'm back in business.

Another instance of reminding myself to never, ever,
ever open a root shell after midnight.

So #linode blocks outgoing email from linodes by default, wish they told me. If they would allow outgoing spam, gmail and the like would simply block linode's address space which would be bad for linode's legitimate customers. To get unblocked an account holder has to file a support tickets. So I'm in the waiting phase. I'm legendary for my egregious typos tho, so hopefully i dont look like an email spammer to their trained eyes XD

Linode servers, domain registrars, and DNS providers, oh my...
And my head is full of linux.
Custom email neither here nor there, or anywhere for that matter...
And what even is Workspace?
If a Caddy web server config breaks, does it make a sound?
It does not...
IPV4 and IPV6 and SSL certificates
I now know why firewalls exist.
2FA this and network security that
And this is just a test server.
Where am I?

After May, 2024 will charge if you're using IPv4 address, no matter it is static or dynamic IPs, so I've migrated my Docker host that hosted on AWS Lightsail to
